Easiest hiking from Guardsman Pass

This peak is a fairly easy hike in the summer when starting from Guardsman Pass, between the Park City area and the Big Cottonwood Canyon ski areas of Brighton and Solitude.

Ok, the real way to get to Jupiter Peak in the summertime is to hike up from the resort parking lot. Try heading up Spiro trail (though avoid downhill bikers), up to Eagle, then on up Crescent Ridge. It's a bear of a hike but you'll be thrilled when you get to the top. You'll need to carry plenty of... More

Beware beginners! This is definitely the most fun part of Park City, ungroomed and lots of tree tracks!

Great vertical, great snow and short lift lines. Why go anywhere else? Despite reports, snow is fine and there are very few exposed areas. we would like three feet, but all is OK right now! Come and have fun.
